I'd heard about this hill all my life! The illusion is interesting for a few moments. It'll make you smile and then you'll wonder if the drive was really worth it.

Had fun experiencing it. Did it several times! The car did go back up or forward (depending on your orientation) while on neutral gear from the bottom of the hill! We even saw a camper do it!

Best in a vehicle vs a motorcycle, but some of the awe is still there. This is a must-do if you are in the area! As for the park, it looks like a great place to take your children.

Nothing really crazy when you figure it out, but still pretty fun to check out while on the road. A few gifts shops were still open but mentioned they will be closed for the season in the next week.

A cool experience which we did on a rainy day. A great place to bring kids & Grand kids . Parts of the area waa closed but a summer visit would be better

You read about it but that doesn't do it justice. You must do it at least once. Friendly, helpful staff and only $6.00. Strike another item off the must do, must see list.

Hello. Yes, the parking lot is very large and they do have room for tour buses, trucks with camper trailers, and more. If I am not mistaken, these areas are lined up in special areas just for those purposes. I have seen many... More
